The questions below are the most common questions I get at shows or online. If you have a question that isn't answered here just use the link below to email me and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Generally two weeks in the Domestic USA but occassionally up to three. For international orders its 2-4 weeks. How will my backdrop be printed?
Backdrops are printed on one of two professional grade Epson printers. Your backdrop will either print on non-adhesive vinyl. or adhesive vinyl from Inkpress. Backdrops can be printed to a maximum height of 44" on adhesive vinyl, and 42" on non-adhesive vinyl. I generally try to print the backdrops in lengths of 6-8 feet depending on the overall length ordered. I have found that a single long roll is just too much paper to handle and very pricey to replace if something goes wrong. Vinyl sections will include an overlap of 2" for alignment of the next section.
Each joining section will have a 2" overlap to assist in lining the sections up. With paper backdrops we do not provide an overlap as it leaves too much seem.
How will my Backdrop be shipped?
Backdrops are shipped via UPS ground for domestic orders and via U.S. Mail Priority Mail for International. When your order ships you will receive an email from UPS with your tracking information.
How should I mount my backdrop?
There are a variety of ways to mount your backdrop. I do not specifically recommend one method over another. Methods I have seen used succesfully include the use of acid free photo spray, double sided tape, and glue. I have also heard of people using contact cement and wallpaper paste but I do not have experience with these.
If you are ordering the backdrop on adhesive vinyl it is simply a case of pulling off the backing and carefully applying to your surface. I recommend two people at least, and using a clean nap roller to apply the backdrop. Please view our Video Tutorials for installation of adhesive vinyl.
Can you make backdrops of different sizes?
The possibilities for backdrop size are numerous. I can now print as tall as 44" on one piece. Through the use of mirror imaging or blending of backdrops the length of the backdrop is really up to you. Just let me know what you are looking for via email or the Custom Orders form on the Custom Orders page.
Can Backdrops be Combined or made longer?
I can use photo editing software to make backdrops longer or to combine backdrops. For this kind of Custom Backdrop go to the Custom Orders page and use the form there to tell me what you are looking for. Once these backdrops are ready I will post them on the site for your approval.
Do I have to use PayPal to order?
While PayPal is one of the easier ways to order I am also happy to accept a check or a credit card over the phone. Simply use the order form at the bottom of each page to let me know which backdrops you are interested in and I will respond via email.
